Penn State redshirt senior QB Trace McSorley threw for 160 yards on 12-of-19 passes with three touchdowns and a pick, and ran for 92 yards in a 63-24 victory over Illinois on Friday.
If there’s such thing as a close 63-24 game, this was it. The Illinois trailed 28-24 going into the fourth, but, things unraveled. Quickly. McSorley was fantastic with his legs -- continuously finding open holes on the read-option -- but his passing left a bit to be desired in this one. His first touchdown was to a wide-open Pat Freiermuth from five yards out, but his second showed off his impressive scrambling ability on a 16-yard strike to Juwan Johnson to give Penn State a 35-24 lead early in the fourth quarter. He added the third after an Illinois’ turnover that gave the Nittany Lions a 42-24 lead they wouldn’t lock back from. McSorley has struggled with accuracy to begin the year, but keep in mind there are a lot of new weapons on this offense. He’s going to have to be at his best next Saturday against Ohio State.
